My friends call me flu

Recommended Posts

My name is Fernando Santiago. I'm a High school dropout, and work part time as a sandwich artist at a local subway. I'm 20 years old and apprentice under a man named Benjamin Garcia

I found a supply company in a neighborhood that didn't require you to work at a tattoo shop. I bought a power supply. a couple months later I was introduced to the man who sold me the power supply. this time not at the supply warehouse but at his tattoo shop...

I asked him how much he'd sell me machines for? He asked if I knew how to tattoo? and I said no, but I'd like to learn and hopefully apprentice somewhere.

The buddy who introduced us had been apprenticing there for a good 8, 9 months and was eagerly ease dropping. Ben asked him if I was a good guy. My friend said yes, and I got the job.

I have booth my legs and thighs covered and 1 tattoo on my tricep(done by my mentor). Good bad and ugly.

last year friend introduced me to a tattooer named Ryan George. I've gotten the opportunity to get tattooed by Ryan only 3 times.. most of the other tattoos on my body have been done by amateurs.. some better than others. some Good some bad and some ugly.

He told me to quit letting amateurs tattoo me. He said I should take my time and save my money. Do my research, and study.

The interviews are great. The tattoo gallery is great.

I haven't been stoked about an online forum since 12oz prophet

Thank you

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
